According to the U.S. Supreme Court, bankruptcy relief is meant to provide “a new opportunity in life unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt.” Bankruptcy is an area of law where experienced professional counsel is critical.

Trying to figure out whether bankruptcy is appropriate or advisable is not a simple task. The reasons for overwhelming debt are as varied as the human experience itself and include job loss, illness and divorce. In addition, credit cards and mortgages had previously been made too easy for people to obtain or refuse. The result is that more and more Americans are financially overwhelmed.
The bankruptcy lawyers of Tully Rinckey PLLC focus on Bankruptcy Law and Civil Litigation matters. Throughout the Albany area, we help debtors and creditors, individuals and families, and small businesses with all types of potential bankruptcy and litigation matters. We have experience helping individuals to explore their options with their creditors; either through negotiation, modification, workout or bankruptcy. We have the knowledge to ask the right questions, so that we can guide you through the options, answer all of your questions and vigorously represent you in order to enforce all of your bankruptcy rights.
Personal Bankruptcy – Chapter 7 & Chapter 13
By having the Albany-based bankruptcy lawyers at Tully Rinckey PLLC help you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, we can help you stop creditors’ action, including lawsuits already filed, collection of judgments already entered and income executions (wage garnishments), not to mention stopping the overwhelming phone calls and threatening letters from your creditors and collection agencies.
Furthermore, we can help you save your house, apartment, car or business machinery, freeze foreclosure and lawsuits, and stop eviction by helping you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy. By filing for Chapter 13 protection you are entitled to cure your past-due home and car loan defaults over time and pay off a small portion of your credit card and/or medical debts in full satisfaction of those obligations in a Chapter 13 wage earner repayment plan.
Corporate Bankruptcy – Chapter 11
In Albany and throughout the nation, many businesses today are suffering from the burden of past business decisions. Many of those same businesses, however, could still operate profitably if they had some temporary relief from their existing debt obligations. Tully Rinckey PLLC’s Albany bankruptcy attorneys have experience assisting financially distressed Capital Region businesses recover from the crippling burden of overextended debt by helping those businesses in Chapter 11 reorganization proceedings.
Chapter 11 is primarily designed to allow a business to continue to operate (with management controlling the day-to-day operations) without the burden of their pre-existing debt obligations, giving them an opportunity to develop a business plan to restructure their debt as well as to possibly relieve them of burdensome leases and contracts. In some circumstances, it may be possible to modify the equity structure of a business as well.
